When he’s not playing the muscular Norse god of thunder in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Hemsworth occasionally makes a cheeky comment online. This time the joke was at his expense because he was celebrating his 39th birthday. While he’s been associated with Marvel for a decade, the Thor actor flirted with DC in his youth, so in honor of his birthday, Hemsworth joked about his bad superhero choices as a kid.
That Thor: Love and Thunder Star decided to celebrate his birthday by posting a throwback photo of himself on Instagram. A young Hemsworth wears a blue turtleneck with a white coat complete with the old school Batman logo. Of course, when he posted the photo, the MCU star knew it might make some Marvel fans laugh, so he beat them out in a race. Check out his adorable photo, complete with his cheeky thoughts on his younger self’s opinion:
Though the star joked that his younger self might be a little disappointed, he probably wouldn’t be terribly disappointed. He’d probably be impressed to see his superhero dreams come through (not through the DC Universe, of course). He would love to see adult Chris Hemsworth wielding Mjolnir and fighting as the Avenger on the big screen. I’m sure the little boy would also be impressed by how muscular and tall he’s grown as an adult. (I mean, Hemsworth’s biceps are bananas!)
The sweet picture of his younger self wasn’t the only thing the A-lister shared on his special day. The father of three took to his Instagram account again to share a special moment he had with his children. The kids surprised their movie star dad with a simple version of an ice cream cake with candles (no ovens were operated by the little ones). Listen to the children serenading you Thor Star with a song by watching the video clip below:
Nothing beats kids showing their parent unit some love on their birthday. That Thor: Love and Thunder The actor seemed happy with the ice cream cones, especially since it was his favorite flavor. The sweet treat definitely seemed good enough to eat, but the real question is if he got a chance to eat his gift before it completely melted.
Just under a month ago, the family celebrated Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky. Hemsworth took to Instagram to celebrate his wife’s birthday with a gush love and thunder Set photo when he was sitting on her lap. They’ve been making posts like this for years, so funny birthday posts are pretty much a tradition in the Hemsworth household at this point. And of course, Chris also gets love from the likes of Ryan Reynolds and Mark Ruffalo, who have previously wished him a happy birthday. I actually think Hemsworth’s latest DC post is as cheeky as anything Reynolds would post on his own social media.
Fans can celebrate Chris Hemsworth’s birthday by watching Thor: Love and Thunder, which is currently in cinemas. While it’s unclear where Thor might appear next in the MCU, there are upcoming Marvel movies slated for years to come that will give fans their superhero fix. But while you wait for the movies to come, we wish Hemsworth many more birthdays.
